Reviews for "The Quiet Hours with SackJo22"

permalink   Fri, Aug 14, 2009 @ 1:18 AM
Well I’m so glad I get to be the first one to review this because it’s stunning! Not surprising, I suppose, as all involved are mega-talented. Textured, subtle, exciting music (very Per) from SP and Haskel; perfect words from Jurgen; and last, but by no means least, SJ’s beautiful voice and interpretation. I’m saying ed pick and I should be listened to. xxxxx

Yes, perfection is there. The choice of this voice is wise, for to hear this message …. Bravo Susan, Bravo Jürgen, Bravo Per, for this arrangement delicious …. Sorry if I forgot others ….

Extremely well crafted.

Per this song is gorgeous, reflecting through its harmonies and dynamics the message of contemplation and discovery contained in the lyric. Your bt is absolutely lovely, Haskel’s guitar playing, tastefully executed, Jurgen’s lyrics touching, and you put it all together masterfully. Thank you again for inviting me to be part of this exquisite piece of music.

Nice work. Very personal, very real. Glad you could do a collaboration like this - congrats to all of you.

Jag tänkte lite grann på Tove Jansson när jag hörde texten. Samma röda tråd som finns både i Sommarboken och i Pappan och havet - strand och hav och att söka efter något.

Hej Mikael. Jag förstår vad du menar. Lite lustigt eftersom naturreferenser är så otroligt vanligt i Nordisk lyrik men texten är skirven av en tysk! Tack!

Such a very sweet song and production. The guitar is superb, and SJ voice is in a very deep way.. smooth…

Interesting to hear personal histories in a collaborative form. Can still hear the connection even after a translation and a third party voice. SackJo was an excellent choice, and I’ve been enjoying Jurgen Herrmann’s work recently, a new favorite. Your concept is in good company.

Per, Jurgen and you wrote a very good song. The music beautifully captures the the melancholy, and also the “hopeful” introspection/ realization of the lyrics. Good arrangement and sackjo sings it very well. Thanks for allowing me to be part of this.

What a beautiful song! Praise to all involved. Susan’s voice is exquisite in this (and those harmonies are luscious) - the musical backing is perfect. I’m blown away by the whole effort.

Hello my great Swede. There is something fine you went into the net. Susan has the song to a black pearl can be. Haskel your wonderful game pleased the old Gitarmann. I am happy that I have a few words could. Words for a friend … much success with this song .. that you deserve .. Attention Google!

Wonderful! Very full production, excellent singing and guitar (of course :P), and a really excellent, smooth feel throughout. The drums are really interesting, too - I like what you’ve done there a lot. Great work

Pretty and lovely in its arrangements, and delivered in a heartfelt way by Susan.
